I saw one review saying that they would buy this book for their mother, I did :-) This book gives a light hearted look at investing and is a good read, but does not contain a lot of 'meat'. I would recommend this book to investors just starting out or investors with only a few years experience and no prior knowledge of the financial markets.

The Motley Fool Strikes! When I first saw these guys on CNBC back in ¿96 I couldn¿t believe my eyes. ¿I mean, who are these clowns and why should I listen to anything they have to say?¿ was roughly what I remember thinking to myself as they bubbled-up investment advice from under matching joker hats. Well, after reading their book, I still have my reservations, but I have to admit it does offer a good way of looking at investments for the mutual fund and buy-and-hold types. Good gains can be found in this type of investment methodology, but as a devout technician, I must say that I still find greater gains in short-term trading which makes a book like Jeff Cooper¿s Hit and Run Trading the best risk-to-reward value out there. Don¿t get me wrong, this book speaks to folks like my mother who wouldn¿t know a bar chart from hieroglyphics on the wall. Additionally, their Dow Dividend portfolio strategy is just what my mother ordered ¿ 15 minutes of research a year for an average 25% return over 20 years! Let¿s face it; in this time, in the world we live in, you have to learn how to read the markets somehow or risk facing financial under performance in the long-run. I think that it is a good start for the absolute novice.
